Ben McAdoo, one of the candidates for the New York Giants' vacant offensive coordinator job, did not interview with the team as scheduled on Saturday. Weather-related flight delays and cancellations made it impossible for McAdoo to get to New Jersey. The 36-year-old quarterbacks coach for the Green Bay Packers is expected to interview on Sunday, provided his travel plans are not interrupted again.

[UPDATE: McAdoo now expected to interview on Monday].

Giants co-owner John Mara freely admits he is rooting for the Carolina Panthers to reach the Super Bowl because former Giants' executive Dave Gettleman is now the Panthers' general manager.

"For me, having them in the building Super Bowl week would not be the least painful thing at all, in fact it would be kind of fun, actually ... I’d be welcoming back an old friend,’’ Mara said.

Giants' linebacker Jon Beason is also rooting for the Panthers. Beason spent six seasons and part of a seventh with the Panthers and admits he still feels like part of the team.

Yahoo Sports lists the Giants top three draft needs as offensive line, linebacker and corner. Agree or disagree, Giants' fans?
